Toyfair 1975 was held from February 16 to the 18th of that year, a pretty signifigant year as many iconic toys from the 70's (some spilling over into the 80's) were born, including the big guy below:

What a great Bionic Man clip. I was amazed at how much the plot sounded like the basis of an entire season of "24". Also loved the cool perspective bait & switch at the very end. My first reaction was "wait - Steve had kung fu grip?"
